The 2013-14 bowl schedule was announced Sunday night, and the Big Ten received two BCS bowl berths. Big Ten champion Michigan State is headed to the Rose Bowl to play Stanford, while Leaders Division champion Ohio State is off to the Orange Bowl to take on Clemson. Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin also received bowl bids. See the Big Ten’s full bowl slate in this post.

Soon the official bowl pairings will be announced. Here are my last projections. The big change is Ohio State falling from the BCS title game to the Orange Bowl, and Michigan State rising to the Rose Bowl.
